While stumping for President Barack Obama in Ohio on Thursday, rock star Bruce Springsteen pledged his support for the president's reelection bid in the form of a song.

Springsteen, whose remarks were preceded by former President Bill Clinton, joked that he recently penned the short number as part of his endorsement for the president, but faced difficulty rhyming words with "Obama."

Among the lyrics was a punchy reference to the vice presidential and presidential debates: "Smilin' Joe really brought the drama, Tuesday Romney was schooled by Obama."

Springsteen also performed a few songs from his iconic catalog while praising Obama's health care law, bailout of the auto industry and record on women's rights, during breaks.
